Dry eye with other symptoms that just wont go away

Well I have had little luck in getting any help from my dr.s for several symptoms that I have had for over two years and have been waiting for to go away, but havent. I first started noticing a burning eye pain, which when i went to my eye doc I found out i had extremely dry eyes, fast forward through about a dozen visits and a dozen different attempts to relieve the dryness and they ended up telling me that there was little else they could do and i was at the excact same discomfort level. Along with that has come extreme fatigue, sinus pressure, ear pain, brain fog, and dizziness.
At a recent visit to my internist she said that i had alot of fluid backup in my ears and that my nasal passages were really red. But when she ordered and ct scan it came up neg for a sinus infection so now she has no idea what to do. she has put me on allergy medicine and tried a trial of antibiotics but neither helped. K just thought i would put my story out there, see if i could get any feedback or help.

Re: Dry eye with other symptoms that just wont go away

Have you had any allergy testing or seen an ENT?

Re: Dry eye with other symptoms that just wont go away

HI RocheJ
You know you sound alot like what I'm going through.
Started having pain in the bend of my eyebrow this January, then my vision started to play up (dark, blurred in my left eye other one lazy) things got worse and worse.
Went to eye dr, who said it was due to my sinuses and to go to ENT which I did, they did a ct scan and I have some thickening. The pink blob in the corner of my eye swells and is very painful and uncomfortable.
Last week in desperation to find out whats going on with my vision I had my eyes tested and the opticain said I have very dry eye. I went back to the eye Dr today, he did the slit lamp test etc, and said that its blepharitis.
Its like my eye has forgotten how to see in the past 5 months. Can;t drive, can't read, can't do anything really.
I have had no explanation to why the vision is dark and more blurred. I'm at a loss like you also.

Re: Dry eye with other symptoms that just wont go away

Yeah I ended up seeing four different eye specialists and I concluded that they seem pretty limited in what they are use to seeing and how they will treat something. It sound like your symptoms like mine are outside the box, and when this happens they kind of just say oh well, theres nothing else we can do. Feels pretty frustrating....
Also I have gone to an allergist before. They didnt seem to go after any specific theories are hunches, just ran the basic testings and found certain things that I already knew i was allergic to. Basically nothing productive came out of it.
